    That's good to hear! And hopefully it's not too difficult on the calculator one - which exam board do you do and which papers are you sitting?

    I do AQA for Geography unfortunately. Which topics do you study?
    Well Paper 2 is about People and the Planet. Topics include Tourism, Development, Globalization, MEDCS and LEDCs and a few more topics.

    UPDATE FOR 01/03/16
    Today I found out some more mock results - but also when my German assessment (writing) will be - on my Birthday (fun)

    Also, I managed to get this done:
    • Coastal erosion notes
    • Drafted questions for revision cards on coastal erosion
    • Written more on my German coursework

    Let me know how you're getting on, I'd love to know

    Just a piece of advice that might not be relevant right now, any opportunities you get to extra-curricular stuff even if its small, you should take. Like NCS, DofE etc. Any talks or lectures around subjects you like too
    That's definitely relevant - I had a college interview today and they said that I should think about whether doing 4 A-Levels and more enrichment activities is better than 5 A-Levels, so I will take this into consideration - Thank you

    Well in AQA we do a Human paper and a Physical Paper and two of the topics from the Human paper are Tourism and Development so you could maybe look at generic sites or some aimed at AQA as they may cover the same info

    Hey again, i was just wondering, do you think typing notes can be better for hand-written notes? Thanks
    Heya (sorry I must have missed your comment )

    I find that writing them makes them stick more but I prefer the neatness of typed notes so I initially write them out by hand to revise the info and then a few days later I will type it up so that I am recapping the info with an interval but then I also have them neat and organised

    Hope this helps and sorry for the late reply

    Geography Paper 2 was fairly good i think although there were some difficult questions that i was quite unsure about. Tomorrow is Maths Paper 2 and Geography Paper 2- decision making paper. Paper 1 for Maths was quite easy so i am expecting something more difficult tomorrow for Paper 2. Oh yes,BTW did you get your grades? How did you do?

    Revision's going well - really knackered at the minute though

    I got some mocks back but I'm not going to say what I got until I have found them all out so I can evaluate them all (I'm not saying I'm pleased with them all, but I can certainly learn from them).

    If you need any help let me know what subjects and I'll see what I can do

    Hey now, come on I'm sure life isn't that bad. Let's work together and I'll help you wherever I can.

    Mocks don't mean much in the grand scale of everything to be honest - it's the work you do from now until you sit in the real exam hall that counts.

    Let me help you so you don't regret it later

    Hey

    For Science and Geography past papers are a MUST! I cannot emphasise it enough. Also, I have made flashcards online which I use for most subjects. Summarising notes from revision guides is useful too - as you could use it in a mindmap or something.

    In terms of motivation, I suppose mine is down to the fact that certain people at school do not have the faith in me to do as well as I want to - so I guess I'm out to prove a point. If you want something hard enough, you'll find that trying is easy. To not get distracted I often listen to music whilst studying (yes, I know there are loads of things for and against listening to music but it works for me ) and I take a break whenever I feel like I am becoming distracted.

    I have been revising casually ever since Christmas really, but I got more serious about it in the February half term because of the mocks I did last week. How is your revision going?

    It's fantastic to hear you want to achieve the best grades and I wish you every success - message me if you ever need help
